From News ReleasesMay 12, 2014 

Miami’s Dale Carey and North Carolina’s Parks Jordan are the ACC Baseball Players of the Week, and Clemson’s Daniel Gossett is ACC Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time this season.

Jordan hit safely in all five games and finished with 10 hits in 19 at-bats (.526) as the Tar Heels won three games, including a victory over No. 4 Florida State. The Winston-Salem senior started at three different positions during the week – left field, second base and first base – and either scored or drove in a run in all five games.

Jordan finished a homer short of the cycle at Elon on Wednesday, driving in three runs. In Sunday’s 5-4 win over Florida State, Jordan scored the winning run in the seventh when he legged out an infield single and took third on a sacrifice fly.
